in reply to irritation makes perls

This is one of those nit-picky things that annoys me, but that I've gotten used to and it rarely bites me anymoer. The annoyance is the odd spelling of } elsif { in the if{} structures.

I've always been curious, why is it elsif rather than elseif?

As I noted, it is just an annoyance...nothing earth-shattering. On rare occasions I still end up mis-typiing it...I think my typing fingers get ahead of my brain...never a good thing.
